It could still come back. Hotels, large and small, are bound by strict
sanitation rules to prevent a resurgence, but there is no such thing as
zero-risk. The risks are, nonetheless, mathematically smaller in
smaller hotels, with less rooms and less guests, than they are in big
hotels. Besides, independent establishments, particularly those that
are family-run, have a huge interest in making sure they remain
virus-free, as their very survival could depend on it. Many of the
small hotels listed on iHi
are in small towns and villages, or even out in the back of beyond,
where the virus never showed up even at the height of the pandemic.
